Please, How do you use by in this sense, "she hurt him by taking away his favorite shirt"?

In this sentence, "by" does not translate in Creole.  Not in this passive form.
Also, is "taking away his favorite shirt" a punishment?

She hurt him by taking away his favorite shirt.
She took away his favorite shirt, that's how she hurt/punished him.
Li te pran chemiz li pi renmen an, se konsa l te pini l.
Li te pran chemiz li pi renmen an, se konsa l te atriste l.
